   beautiful brokenness
C. Lefteri gives a gripping account of the asylum seekers world as they find their way to a land of safety. The reader can live in the heart and soul of these broken people by shifting between flashbacks, memories and real time events. The hope is that the descriptions of the bees in their natural environment will help with healing.
   Very Good but Very Grim
The book is very important in showing what immigrants go through when they leave their home countries, but it is not an easy read. It is not for the faint of heart.
   gift for Mother
My mother is a docent at a museum and is also a member of a book club that reads Asian book history once a month. When she couldn't get it at the local library, I found this for her.
   Poorly written
The book doesn't do the job of showing the life in Syria. From the beginning of the book, it takes you back and forth. Even though the events are being remembered, it is written in the present tense.
I was looking forward to this book. There were several disappointments. It is an awkward size and it doesn't fit in my hands. The plot was boring. If you want a page turner, this is not the story for you.
   Captivating story
The story is compelling and captivating. The author combines the horrors that many refugees experience throughout their journey with a compelling and captivating story.
   Refugee’s odyssey
The tale of a family who lost their home in Syria and their struggle to deal with personnel loss. After losing his job as a bee keeper, they embark on an odyssey that takes them to refugee camps and finally to England.
   The book is a harrowing tale of displacement.
The story was told in a way that made it seem like the author was trying to convey the trauma of the main character. That approach caused confusion. Only the main character was fully developed. I would have liked to see more development of other characters. The book depicts the trials of refugees on the move in large numbers, seeking havens far from their native lands.
   Heartbreaking and beautiful!
It is difficult to write a review of a book that is personal. Will everyone think the same about this book? Probably not. Is it worth the time? Absolutely. Being forced from your home by war is worse than being a refugee.
   Not really worth the time. Bounces around too much.
It was interesting but bounced around a lot. It was difficult to know if Nuri was imagining or actually experiencing.
